In news from the Korean Peninsula, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has invited South Korean President Moon Jae-in to visit the North Korean capital Pyongyang, in what could be the first meeting of Korean leaders in more than a decade. The offer is the latest in a thaw of tensions on the peninsula amid the Winter Olympics in South Korea. While returning from the Olympic opening ceremonies, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence says the United States would be open to talks with North Korea, although he recently announced a new round of sanctions against North Korea.
